The delegates

We're looking for delegates from small, medium and large 3rd-sector organisations based in the North West or UK whose work focuses on either local, national or international concerns.

Selected participants will be expected to come from a range of third-sector backgrounds including housing, children, the elderly, poverty, heath, education, environment, campaigning, policy change and research.

Within these organisations we are looking for:

  • Senior executives (e.g. Chief Executives)
  • Senior managers (e.g. Directors or heads of functions such as HR, Finance)
  • Policy makers (e.g. colleagues from think-tanks and policy institutes)
  • Senior practitioners with specialist knowledge (e.g. field workers in both the UK and internationally).

Places will be limited because of space so a selection process may be required due to the overwhelming response we had for the 2016/2017 information.
